Also I have located my proper winter boots, where they had been hibernating in Mum's front hall closet since approximately 1996. Was promptly pushed in the snow by neighbour-of-long-standing, but it's all good, as he overlooked short people having lower centres of gravity and I got snow down his pants, ha ha. War may be resumed later, once re-inforcements arrive in form of middlelittlesis - littlestsis was too craven to come all the way outside.
Roughly 2.5 feet of snow in the street outside, and the street itself is blocked off at the ends for normal cars. Across-the-street neighbours drive big trucks which are presently the only way in and out of the street. This is how middlelittlesis (still at her apartment wrapping presents, as of ten minutes ago) is getting here from Pitt Meadows tonight - she drives Dad's old Corolla, which is roughly six inches from the ground and thus utterly useless DURING RAGNAROK.
It's getting windy outside, too. So much for walking the dogs. o.O
